Table of Contents
Substantive, enthusiastic conversation about education helps clarify my thinking as I write. I had numerous fruitful discussions with colleagues I respect as I worked on this book. Although I no doubt will unintentionally neglect to mention everyone who helped, I am especially grateful to the following people for sharing their thoughts, insights, and questions: John Erwin, author of The Classroom of Choice; Sue Tomaszewski of Orleans/Niagara BOCES; Ruth Mitchell and Linda Radtke of High Schools That Work, Southwest Ohio; Erika Brockman, Turi Nilsson, and the entire staff of Southwest Baltimore Charter School; and Craig White and Marcy Emberger of Atlantic Canada Connected Community.
A special thanks goes to Scott Willis, ASCD's director of Book Acquisitions and Development. Throughout the submission process, Scott provided valuable feedback and guidance. His support and belief in this book were unwavering.
I was fortunate to once again work with Ernesto Yermoli, who served as the project manager for this book. Ernesto has the ability to clarify and simplify what I write without compromising the content. Thanks to Ernesto, readers have a tighter, better book in their hands.
And finally, thank you to my wife Laurie, who gives me the time and space I need when I get "lost" in writing.
